Home at last, after much restorative beer and companionship. Best Don Carlo I've ever seen, or indeed hope to, by a mile. #ROHDonCarloRuth Elleson
Knees slightly sore from standing up, but #ROHdoncarlo utterly brilliant - Kaufmann, Furlanetto and Kwiecien superb, and Harteros exquisiteTom Poster
Pappano's conducting did individual moments well but I felt that it lacked the long view. Orchestra excellent, chorus good #ROHDonCarloOperatraveller
"Peace for the empire is worth a rebel's life" - deliberate nod to Star Wars Day (May the Fourth) in #ROHDonCarlo surtitles, or coincidence?Peter Morley

#ROHdoncarlo a truly wonderful evening -- Pappano extraordinary, as always ; Kaufmann, Harteros et al. wonderful; and Hytner prod. superb.Edward Davey
Guys, you MUST go and see #ROHDonCarlo. Harteros' Act 5 aria was just SPECTACULAR.Ted Black
Uria-Monzon: great dramatic instincts, a vocal colour not unlike Fedora Barbieri, 'flaring' top notes (others might say shrill) #ROHdoncarloJamie Henderson
Anja Harteros was just fantastic. Her final aria made me shiver. And of course, #Jonaaas, THE romantic hero. What an evening ! #ROHdoncarloMoose on a hill
